Knit Christmas Tree Skirt

Nothing like finishing at the last minute!  Since I tend to spend quite a bit of time in my office/hobby room, I decided to spread some Christmas cheer by setting up a Christmas tree.  We ran across a great sale and I got a 4 foot white tree that is now spruced up with pink decorations and ribbons.  Obviously the not-so-pretty stand had to be covered up with a tree skirt and I was delighted to find a knit pattern.

Amazingly I finished this is about a week and a half, mostly because it's done in garter stitch and short rows.  I was also working on this project the week that Keith worked evenings and my daughter and spent some quality time watching tv and doing needlework together.

I'm very, very pleased with how this came out.  It completes my little girly tree.  And having a knitted Christmas tree skirt is fairly unique I would think.
